Rogue-lite. Marketed as one, and fits the main criteria.

Hey there Nexeus_, thanks for your disagreement re: the genres on this game.

Following a review with the team, despite there being some RL elements present in the game, we don't feel there are quite enough to qualify it for the genre based on the evidence we saw so it won't get added for now.

Feel free to follow up if you think there is something we overlooked. toast

How exactly? You run randomized maps, accrue item unlocks for use in future runs, and death wipes your party. Granted, most RL are either side scrollers, or some form of twin stick, I feel like this is 100% RPG roguelite. Just curious in case I missed something, so I dont flag something down in the future. The genre is exploding these days.
